Augusta University is celebrating our six core values during the third annual Values Week from Nov. 9-13.

Join us for activities that focus on our institutional core values of collegiality, compassion, excellence, inclusion, leadership and integrity. Also, show your Jaguar spirit of giving this week by participating in our two donation drives!

Blanket drive to benefit AU Health patients

Being in the hospital at any time is difficult, but it is especially hard during the holiday season. Help spread comfort and joy to the inpatients at AU Health by purchasing blankets and donating them to the Center for Patients and Families. Blankets must be new (homemade items cannot be accepted) and can be any size, pattern or fabric. Drop-off locations at Greenblatt Library on Health Sciences Campus and Reese Library on Summerville Campus.

Children’s holiday book drive project

Jenkins-White is a K-5 school including students with special needs. Many of the students are considered low-income. They often do not have books at home of their own. During the time off from school when children do not have access to the school’s media center. We would like to send every child home with books for the holiday break. This would allow the entire family to have the opportunity to enjoy reading. Drop-off locations at Greenblatt Library on Health Sciences Campus and Reese Library on Summerville Campus.

Below are a few highlights from the week’s events. Visit the Values Week webpage for more information, printable posters and a full schedule.
